                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I can only hope that my replacement does not drop the torch.  We've got
productivity to multi-year highs.  There have been complaints that my management
style is not friendly.  Well, I am not trying to make friends.  I am trying to keep
this place afloat.  And now I'm being transferred out to take my talents elsewhere.
I can only hope I represent Zorpunt well in what will likely be my final act as a
Gladitorial boss!
     Assur hasn't yet decided when my final dance will take place, but I will be
ready!

And so...

I am done!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ZORPUNT.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  SHEWISH BUFFET had 
cause to celebrate, after CHILI CON CARNAGE got 39 points by beating CAN I KICK IT?.  
Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, PHIFE was winsome, after beating T-JON LOY 
and seeing him lose 4 points.  Can you believe it?  ARE YOU DONE, YET? apparently has 
better things to do as ZORPUNT's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  What can be a 
greater victory?  CHILI CON CARNAGE has taken his place as the top, as ZORPUNT's new 
Duelmaster.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Hey SHEWISH BUFFET!  
Is there some deep dark, unmentionable secret as to why LUBANESE SPICE has been sent 
to the Dark Arena?   3-1-0 isn't so shabby!  Death (in the form of CHILI CON CARNAGE 
of SHEWISH BUFFET) knocked on CAN I KICK IT?'s door.  What will TRIBE do?  The 
suspense is killing me.  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate 
long after you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
ZORPUNT, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Dripping 
Blade.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

I thought I saw stars twinkling outside the window, which would have been strange
since the window in question does not provide a view of the sky from this angle.
Then I realized it was a lightning bug.  I still don't care for the climate, MUCH too
wet, but... lightning bugs are cool. -- Jorja, feeling nostalgic

     I thought "nostalgic" meant something more like "algae in a nostril"?

Funky Diabetic -- Got those in our family, don't think much of it. -- Pearl Stone

Can I Kick It? -- Why bother asking, since you WILL kick it regardless. -- Kolman
Poole

Phife -- Too shrill. -- Pogo Polen

Ambitious Guard?  Ha! -- T-Jon Loy

Sergeant 6 -- I was outnumbered! -- Little Smiff

Moaki -- You are one productive worker.  I will make sure to put that in your review.
